Kim Kardashian credits Kanye West for making her a "more confident" person.

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star appeared on the "We Are Supported By..." podcast with hosts Kristen Bell and Monica Padman on Wednesday and opened up about how her long-term relationship with the rapper changed her for the better.

When likability and the idea of how women are shaped to act a certain way was brought up, Kardashian shared how she grew past "people pleasing."

"I got to a point - and maybe it was being in a relationship with Kanye for a decade and someone that absolutely didn't care about likeability factor or what any of perception of him was as long as he was true to himself," Kardashian said.

She continued: "That taught me so much in the best way of just being me and truly not care as much about what other people thought."

Kardashian, who was married to Kanye West for seven years, filed for divorce in February, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for separation.

The former couple share children North, 8; Saint, 5; Chicago, 3; and Psalm, 2 and have been "committed to co-parenting" since their split.

In June, West sparked dating rumors when he was spotted vacationing with Irina Shayk in France for his birthday.

A source previously told Hollywood Life that Kardashian and West "have made a pact to support each other."

Kardashian and their kids have showed up to support West at both of his recent listening parties for his new album, "Donda," in Atlanta.
